I did not know anything about the Lord. There were many problems in my life. When I started listening to ‘Ujjna Gahi Dahare’ radio program in my own language in ‘Kurukh’ through the servant of God in my neighborhood, since then there has been a change in my life. After listing to the word of God and through prayer, I have been relieved from my personal problems. Now I also believe in the Living God. Kindly continue to uphold me and my family in your prayers. – Tirkey

I am a new listener and it is my first letter to you. Last month I got a chance to listen to this ‘sShanti Data’ radio program on Sunday evening. I belong to a non-Christian (Hindu) family. My family and all the villagers are non-Christians. I like this program very much. I want to know more about Jesus christ. Please send me some helpful literature. – Pritikh

I listen to your ‘Shanti Data’ radio prgram with great joy. I have completed your 12 Bible lessons and got a beautiful certificate and a New Testament. After reading the books, I realized that I am a sinner and only God can give me forgiveness. I conffessed my sins before Jesus and accepted HIm as my Lord and Saviour. Now I have peace, joy and happiness in my life. Thanks for helping me to know about Jssus Christ. – Jagdish

I am a regulare listener to the ‘Ehpa Gatanju’ (Kui language) program. I started listening to it almost two years ago. Your radio program gives me new strength, peace and joy. When I listen to the word of God, it touches my heart and leads me on a right path. A few months ago I had repented for my sins and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Pray for my spiritual growth and send me some literature. – Arun

I am a regular listener to your radio broadcasts in ‘Odia’ and ‘Hindi’ languages. I listen to ‘Shanti Data’ (Odia broadcast) and ‘Aap Ke Liye’ and ‘Nav Jeevan’ (Hindi broadcasts). I believe in Jesus Christ. Sometimes I get scared and worried becase in my family and neighborhood no one believes in the Lord. I have taken some loans and because of that I was mentally sick for some time. I have no father. Please pray for me that I would be able to repay my loan and get rid of my bad habits. – Hira

I listened to the word of God at my friend’s house recently in my own language, i.e. ‘Kurukh,’ and liked it very much. I am a catholic but now I am anxious to learn more about Jesus the Lord. Therefore I request you to kindly help me further. I would be very thankful to you. –  Rakesh
